    Okay, so the rumor came from a Chinese news site, right?

    Well, when native speakers of mandarin chinese pronounce the "x" sound, they usually confuse the sounds between "th" and "s" and "x".

    So, iphone "math" might just be iphone "max" when the first person tried to pronounce the name.

    I mean, iPhone max is still a stupid name, but certainly makes more sense than iPhone "math"...

    Or perhaps "numbers" was poorly translated to "math". The next iphone number. iPhone 6.

    I thought this the other day as well.. but an entire iP line being budget friendly? I don't see /that/ happening. Like Lamborghini making a mini van and calling it the murchilago. But hey, who knows, could be.

    Or perhaps they could have mispronounced it as at iPhone Mac. Mac referring to OS X. Meaning that the new iphone is running snow leopard. Notice that the next version of OS X is 10.9. Well 1+0+9 = 10 and 10-4 = 6. Coincidence that the iphone 5 is the last iphone and 6 comes after 5 which is exactly what we calculated?!

    Also notice that 4*6 = 24 and one day has exactly 24 hours! but the new ipad has exactly 128gb. Well 128/24=5.33! Well we already have seen an iphone5 and 0.33 might be refering to 3 march 2013

    Its just all too suspicious to be a coincidence

    I agree with this. "Math", "plus sign"...I can see where it'd get lost in translation. And something like iPhone+ seems feasible. I doubt that is the official name they would use, but it seems possible. Regardless, I wasn't really a believer before, but I am starting to warm up to the idea of Apple creating a larger phone eventually. And a larger iPhone called the iPhone+ makes sense.

    And FWIW, "iPhone Math" is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard and anyone who believed that for a second or gave that name any real consideration is completely out of touch and simply retarded. :)
